Hu.. Ho.. He.. Awhatnow? Huevos Rancheros is originally a Mexican breakfast dish, but we're taking the liberty of serving it a bit later in the day. Because this dish is a perfect vegetarian and family-friendly dinner: Warm tortillas topped with yummy filling and fried eggs. Enjoy!


1. Dice onion and garlic. Clean and dice the bell pepper. Sautée the lot on a pan in a bit of olive oil. Add paprika, cumin and coriander and let it all cook for a couple of minutes.

2. Add chopped tomatoes, tomato purée, water and kidney beans, and let simmer for 5 minutes.

3. Crack the eggs on a warm pan with some olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, fry the eggs, and move them to a plate.

4. Warm the tortillas on a pan or in the oven. Slice the avocado and drizzle with some lime juice, so it doesn't go brown. Pour creme fraiche in a small bowl and cut lime into wedges.

5. Set everything on the table, and now assemble your favourite Huevos Rancheros by placing a tortilla on your plate and topping with your favourite filling. They can be eaten open-faced with a knife and fork (this way you can compete over whose plate looks nicest), or they can be rolled up into a wrap.

6. Buen provecho... or just: Enjoy!


Tasks for kids in the kitchen: Let your kids help slice the bell pepper. They can also crack the eggs onto the pan and cut the avocado.
